The Effect Of Eating Coconut Milk When Pregnant?
Is it true that when pregnant eating coconut milk makes babies born, there is yellowish white fat sticking to the body?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The yellowish-white fat-like substance that often sticks to the body of a newborn is actually part of the amniotic fluid. This condition is not dangerous, nor is it related to the type of food you have previously consumed.
Consuming coconut milk during pregnancy is not a prohibited act. Coconut milk contains high fat and cholesterol which are good for supporting the development of the fetus in the womb and increasing body weight. You can still eat coconut milk during pregnancy, as long as you make sure that the food is processed in a hygienic manner, so that you avoid the risk of gastrointestinal infections.
However, you should not consume any food or drink excessively during pregnancy, including coconut milk. This condition needs attention especially if:
You have an allergy to coconut milk or processed foods
You have a problem related to increased stomach acid (dyspepsia syndrome), because this condition is often worsened by excessive consumption of coconut milk, especially if the consumption is done on an empty stomach or near bedtime
Your weight has increased dramatically while pregnant
The estimated fetal weight in your womb far exceeds your estimated gestational age
You have a history of atherosclerosis, heart attack, stroke, and so on
Also balance the consumption of coconut milk with lots of drinking, and also consuming lots of vegetables and fruits. Do not forget also, always control your pregnancy to a gynecologist every 1 month until the gestational age reaches 7 months, 2 weeks at 8 months of gestation, and 1 week starting from 36 weeks of gestation until your delivery arrives.
Hope it helps ..
